The Modern 10 Plagues

One of the most important parts of our Passover Seder is our discussion of the 10 modern plagues. In our family, retelling the story of Passover is only worthwhile if the themes of the story are made relevant to the 21st century. Otherwise, why do we pass this story on from generation to generation? It is to recall our freedom from bondage, certainly, but it is also to remember others’ bondage today, and our responsibility to help those born less free or powerful.

With that, I give you the Modern Ten Plagues.

  1. POLLUTION
  2. DISEASE
  3. POVERTY
  4. HUNGER
  5. THIRST
  6. EXPLOITATION
  7. ABUSE
  8. CORRUPTION
  9. GENOCIDE
  10. WAR
